You know what I hate the most about icons? "Icon love" posts in a LJ comm that isn't dedicated to icon talk. I think it's fine to praise someone's icons as long as some of your post remains on topic, but I find it so annoying to stumble on what looks like it will be a long, interesting discussion only to find that half of it is "omg icon!love" replies and OT chatter about icons.
Does this bug anyone else or am I alone? It's probably a really trivial thing to get so frustrated about but I can't help it.
